    Trying to make some news

    The usual suspects for sure... all 100 of them.

    The Vatican's position on women entering the priesthood has not budged, despite polls showing a majority of American Catholics favor allowing them to do so.

    The L.A.Times can be excused I suppose of for thinking that polls can change
    Church teaching.


    Jane Via said she would probably cry and, sure enough, she did.

    Midway through her homily at the rented San Diego church used by her upstart congregation, Via choked up, thanking the packed house of 100 worshipers for sustaining her over the last week.

    The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has not taken a formal position on the issue, but three of the American women have received letters from diocese officials warning that they had chosen to excommunicate themselves.

    Via called such consequences "unwelcome," but also, in a sense, liberating."I was so angry for so long at the church and church men who weren't willing to make even the smallest change in language to include women," she said. "My anger is gone."

    Liberated by excommunication. Well, at least her anger is gone.
